Featured Adobe Community Expert - Pierre-Etienne Courtejoie
Presenting our featured Adobe Community Expert for the month, Pierre-Etienne Courtejoie. Pierre-Etienne has been a community member for over 17 years, written over 13,542 posts with many "Likes," and accepted solutions from users like you. Pierre-Etienne and I chatted, and he told me he was featured in the DI community previously. He gave me that article to share with you.
"Hi, I'm Pierre-Etienne Courtejoie, also known as PECourtejoie, or even sPECtre online. One can describe me as a Photoshopaholic unanimous from Belgium! Since I grew up in the 80's, personal computing was difficult to avoid. I played video games at my grandfather's shop, but I had an Amiga at home, which led me to learn English by myself to understand the Amiga magazines from England. I joined a Fine Arts school, where Amiga and Deluxe Paint IV were used, but in the corner of one of the classrooms, I saw a Mac with Photoshop 2.5 installed... Unfortunately just for teachers to dabble with! Through friends, I discovered a school that used Ps 3.0 (with LAYERS!), taught silkscreen printing, basic 3D, drawing, photography, and desktop publishing… So, during the summer, I worked many hours at a student job to save and custom-build a PC on which I could install Photoshop! After completing school in late '99, I upgraded my PC (64 MB RAM, incredible!), got internet, and searched for tutorials about filters to create all kinds of textures and effects. Most of the sites had forums, which I immediately joined, and the Adobe Forums, where Adobe engineers hung around! I read everything I could, asked questions, read answers, and quickly started answering them, thanks to what I had read elsewhere. I noticed that one learns faster by answering.
On the Adobe User forums, I compiled the first Camera Raw FAQ, which led me to moderation rights there and opened the door to prerelease programs. I was also prolific on Community Help, where we would correct, add, and supplement content. That's how I was invited to become an Adobe Community Professional. When our kids were born, I had to redistribute my time between all my loves...
Nowadays, one of my growing interests is type design, and there are even Photoshop and Illustrator plug-ins dedicated to it! Also, the versatility of After Effects' filters or the Substance procedural textures creation tool seems like what we hoped to get years ago... Mmh, do we need that many hours of sleep? A very long tirade, I hope some souvenirs will resonate for the, ahem, veteran users out there; but especially that it might spark an interest for others to pay it forward, join the forums, help others, and discover that it does also make you grow along the way! Happy pixel pushing!"
We appreciate your professional expertise and presence here on the forums, Pierre-Etienne. The Premiere Pro community thanks you for all your talents and community spirit. Have you ever been helped by Pierre-Etienne? If so, drop him a note if you have time.
